This study was carried out as part of the Local Government Association Educational Research Programme. The focus of the research was primarily on the impact of recent legislation and regulations on the revised role of LEAs and school improvement. In order to examine a range of perceptions in sufficient depth, a case study approach was used, involving a cross-section of ten LEAs.
